You need a sag harbor village parking sticker to pArk in the lot here and i guess that keeps the crowds down. This is a great spot to swim (despite the "no swimming" signs), and a great spot for dogs (across from the parking lot). Its also an easy walk to the cliffs at Barcelona Neck if you dont mind...

Hidden away from the main crowds, Haven's Beach is for families and boaters. We like it for the simple pleasure it offers...after a day at the beach we take our dog for a walk and watch the sailboats in the harbor. Of course we make sure not to leave a "mess" and love the local feel of the spot.

I am now in my seventies and still cannot swim but I still go to Havens Beach. Please visit and make your own memories. The yatchs have... More

We used to take the kids to this beach every day. The water is mild and great for looking for shells. The beach is not that deep so you don't feel like you are dragging all of your beach stuff very far. There are close bathrooms and two outdoor showers. You can also put the kids on a swing set...

Equipped with swings, jungle gym, sliding board, rest rooms, gazebo, picnic tables, BBQ's, this is a great beach for families with children. The bay waters are calm and the beach is sandier than most bay beaches.

This is a terrific Bay beach in Sag Harbor. No real waves and easily accessible from parking lot. There are bathrooms here in season. Will need a local resident sticker or you can buy a day pass. There is also a swing set, slide and some climbing equipment.

We have a 4 and 6 yr old and this is their favorite beach. Sand is rocky and it is not nice from adult standpoint, but great for kids. They found hermit crabs and a conch and keep asking to go back. We went to 6 different beaches.

Changing rooms, parking (need permit or pay $10), swings for kids. This relatively quite beach expands the length of the cove for walks and gorgeous views.

I've read a few reviews which made Havens sound like it was actually IN Sag Harbor. If you go by foot, be prepared to walk about 25 minutes from Main Street. It's rather small, but nice
